Evart Motorcycle Trail

Saturday, December 23, 2023

Other Names

Pere Marquette State Forest, Chippewa River State Forest, Strawberry Lake

Last Known StatusOpen

Open to motorcycles only, this 22-mile long single track trail offers moderate elevation changes with a nice mix of sand, loose dirt, roots, rocks and some hard pack. The trail is technical and is geared for experienced riders.

The staging area is small but forms a loop, making it easy to get in and out. There is an informational kiosk and vault toilet but no other amenities. The trail heads north toward Sunrise Lake before heading south back to the staging area.

There is no fee charged to park or ride but all dirt bikes must display a current Michigan ORV Sticker.
